If it helps ive got a Supercard DSTwo with the stock SFC emulator on it (v 1.05). Just wandering which emulator (i guess it'd just be between the SCDStwo one and Snemul DS) is the best? Specifically i want to run Lufia 2 and the DKC games.

The only other emulator for the DS is CATSFC. A search on google will likely find links and what-not. It has better compatability, but I personally didn't find it to be very good.

fair enough, thanks for the quick reply. ill give it a go, otherwise i guess ill stick with PSP emulation, though i like playing SNES games on a Nintendo handheld...makes it seem more official somehow. PLus the DSi buttons are much better than the PSP Go's.

There are
  • SNEmulDS
    • Works with all flash carts
    • Doesn't have an input-output delay
    • Speedhacks
    • Has layering issues, sound issues and the worst compatibility of the 4 emulators
    • Development is practically halted/dead
  • NDSSFC
    • Somewhat good compatibility
    • Cheats feature
    • Works with Supercard DSTwo only
    • No speedhacks
    • Annoying input-output delay
    • Development halted/dead
  • BAGSFC
    • Better compatibility than NDSSFC
    • Cheats feature
    • Works with Supercard DSTwo only
    • No speedhacks
    • Annoying input-output delay
    • Development halted/dead
  • CATSFC
    • Best compatibility (still not perfect)
    • Cheats feature
    • Works with Supercard DSTwo only
    • No speedhacks
    • Annoying input-output delay
    • Development halted/dead

Thanks guys for keeping this current, I was going to make a post asking about emulators for a friend.

I guess he's stuck with his crappy PSP or Wii.


As for me, the iOS emulators run fairly well.




Also, why did those folk just give up? It seems like the DS could handle legacy emulation a lot better than the PSP, and the PSP works 90% now.

I see. That's kind of disappointing, I remember the same thing being said about the PSP too back in the day.

I guess I figured as we all grew up with the DS, so would the coders.

What about BAGSFC and NDSSFC?
Or SNESDS or SNEMUL?
>_>

EDIT: I didn't see WiiBricker's post. Sorry.
But yeah, there's also SNESDS.

The difference in relative processing power between the DS and the PSP is much larger than you think. SNEmulDS is probably very close to the upper limit on how good it could be on stock DS hardware alone, while the DS:TWO's emulators use the cart's extra processing power to run a port of snes9x (the same one that was ported to the PSP as well).

lolwut

The PSP's way more powerful than the DS, and it's got a higher resolution so it doesn't even need to downscale (so it wouldn't even need to be as complex visually).

I don't think that it has stopped altogether, it seems that we don't now too much about it. I recall seeing a post where alekmaul said h was working in a snes library for the ds.

Well, according to this development halted on March 5th.
